Location + Surroundings

Tanzania's jaw-dropping showpieces include Africa's highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro; the world's largest intact volcanic caldera, the Ngorongoro Crater; the annual Great Migration of millions of wildebeest and zebras across the magnificent Serengeti Plains; the highest concentrations of cats and other predators in Africa; beautiful Indian Ocean beaches on the historic Spice Island of Zanzibar, and so much more.

Ruaha is Tanzania's largest National Park and is an ancient and wild park in the southern circuit of Tanzania, studded with thick baobabs many hundreds of years old, and carved through the center by the Great Ruaha River. Ruaha is perfect for those seeking an ever more elusive raw Africa experience in a truly wild landscape. Famous for its large prides of lions and elephants, Ruaha also has cheetah on the plains and leopard sightings are frequent.

One of the great things about Africa is that there is such a variety of things to see and do. Many of the activities on offer appeal to those with a particular passion, for those who love walking, the treks can be truly spectacular, birdwatchers may feel overwhelmed by the extraordinary range and diversity of birdlife, and any artists or photographers seeking inspiring landscapes will be thoroughly spoiled for choice.

The game viewing at and around this glamping site is some of the best in the world, and Tanzania’s coastline and islands have some of the world's most beautiful beaches too. Here, glampers can seamlessly combine an authentic, wild safari adventure with a deserted Indian Ocean beach holiday, a match made in heaven.

Tanzania is well-developed in terms of activities and experiences, so why not add in a hot air balloon trip, a night fly-camping in the bush, a spot of pristine reef diving or an alfresco dinner in the middle of the Serengeti?

Africa and Tanzania specifically, is a land best explored on foot; with its stunning landscapes and great guides, getting out and about on foot awakens the senses and brings glampers closer to the action. There is a myriad of choices for walking to all the best safari places; whether just a brief excursion or over a period of days, Tanzania provides a variety of landscapes and wildlife for all to be amazed at.

Good riding safaris are something to treasure; for those who are comfortable in a saddle and experienced enough to manage a few hours in the bush, this site offers some brilliant safari experiences for all, in addition, there are shorter rides in other beautiful locations around the site for those less confident riders.

Much of the joy of travel is the experience of other cultures and traditions. Take the time to know and understand the local heritage of Tanzania. Cultural tourism is a tricky thing to accomplish well, but if it is done well it is incredibly worthwhile. The opportunity to interact on a personal level with Tanzanian's will enhance glampers' experience to no end.

To the northeast, glampers will find notable mountains and volcanoes including the biggest mountain in Africa, Kilimanjaro, as well as Mount Meru. Moving further west over part of the Rift Valley (Gregory Rift) is the Ngorongoro Crater. To the west of the Crater Highlands lies the world-renowned Serengeti National Park, home to the annual migration of millions of wildebeest.

Lake Victoria and Lake Tanganyika lie on two of Tanzania’s borders, whilst inland at the center of Tanzania is a large plateau where glampers will find one of the favorite wildlife areas, Selous National Park. To the east is the coast and Tanzania’s transport hub, Dar es Salaam, a gateway to the Zanzibar Archipelago in all its spiced glory.

The allure of Zanzibar often overshadows Tanzania's stunning mainland coast and other islands, leaving them beautifully uncrowded for travelers in the know. The beaches here are fabulous, generally deserted and offer good value for money. There is not much to do in many cases, but for those who would simply like to just relax and recharge in a glorious natural setting, a stay here at the beginning or end of a glamping trip is ideal.

Additional Information

Tanzania is great all year round, especially between June and October when game viewing is at its best, but watch out for the main rainy season in April and May when glampers could possibly witness a proper African thunderstorm.

During the dry season, as water sources diminish and vegetation dries out, the wildlife has no option but to seek water at the limited water holes, guaranteeing a spectacular pageant of predatory action.

It is the responsibility of the traveler to obtain the necessary visas for their trip.

Rates are listed per person, per night.

U.S. dollars are favored above Sterling, and most excursions, tips, drinks, and curios can be paid for in dollars.

Flights departing Zanzibar are subject to a departure tax of $46 per person for international flights and around $15 per person for internal flights. Flights from Kigali are subject to a departure tax of $40. These amounts must be paid locally in cash. All other taxes within Tanzania are prepaid. Read more
